Here I wait resting on the door jamb standing betwixt and between shall I stay here or drop my hand, move beyond what I’ve known and seen? What will be out there to my left and right where will the next step take me from here? They said danger is there out of my sight - threats, jinxes, and disease if that step I dare.
But if I move back into the shady cool I’ll be safe in this cozy inner space. Being in between without old rules not knowing the beyond I’ll face is scary but this is a journey of revelation even if sacrifice and loss is in this race I trust I will find peace and inspiration.
It seems these days we are in what is sometimes called liminal space, it is a place in between what we have known and experienced and what reality will be in the future. It is a threshold which is uncomfortable and scary but also full of opportunity and possibilities of new discoveries, growth, and self-awareness.
